Dashain has great religious and cultural importance. The celebration of Dashain signifies power and victories of Gods and Goddesses over demons. Another significant reason for its celebration is that Lord Ram killed the king of demons, Ravan during this period to free people of the coercion. Thus, Dashain is a symbol of victory of the good over evil.

The Government gives a five day public holiday for the celebration of Dashain. Dashain is marked by various rituals and cultural ceremonies. Its all about exchanging the grief and forgetting the prejudices of the past.
